[BoyGeniusReport]Iphone SDK Honemoon Over - No Background processes!?

Quote:
Only one iPhone application can run at a time, and third-party applications never run in the background. This means that when users switch to another application, answer the phone, or check their email, the application they were using quits.
This, people, is remarkably bad news. The quote above is pulled from the iPhone Human Interface Guidelines document available on the SDK site. Translation: no true multitasking. Of course we know that the iPhone can multitask; just consider the apps we have now, or use Sysinfo to take a look through the running processes and you can see.

Aww damn, even though we all know this is possible, just look at jailbroken iPods.

Maybe this will be changed in the future, because the mobilescrobbler for last.fm is a great app that everyone should have.
